ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) — Kerry Washington never talks about her personal life, but she has revealed a bit about her daughter.

The Scandal star appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday and bonded with the late night host about their newborn daughters.

“I heard your baby’s named after her grandmother?” Washington asked Jimmy Kimmel. “Mine is too, named after my grandmother.”

“We should swap them and see if our families notice,” joked Kimmel. “Just for a few days.”

Washington, 37, and her husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, 33, welcomed their daughter, Isabelle, in April. During her pregnancy, Kimmel, a “good friend,” pampered the actress with a shipment of barbecue from La Barbecue in Austin, Texas.

“There’s nothing more kind to do for a pregnant lady than [sending her] a box full of frozen deliciousness,” gushed Washington of the gesture. “It was amazing.”
